the answer to that at the moment is yes. the post on monday did move ohio from a tossup state to a lean obama state. not just because of our poll that showed him up eight points but because of the wealth of data we've had out there. i would say as a word of caution, i don't think anyone including the obama team thinks they are going to win ohio by eight or ten points. they are ahead at the moment. they're probably ahead and think they may win by three, four, five points, but remember how critical ohio is to mitt romney's math. hard to see how he gets to 270 electoral votes without it. why he's in the state today, president obama is in the state today. they don't spend time in states less than six weeks before an election by accident. >> chris, when we talk about this campaign, how is it possible, karen you weigh in here, how is it possible for mitt romney to win without ohio? there's a very narrow way but he would have to win both virginia and florida, and he's not -- he's not looking so great in those states right now either. >> one of the things -- >> right. >> one of the things that really

and president obama will be battling for attention there, but the latest cbs news poll swing state shows romney with some ground to make up. the poll just out this morning has president obama up ten points in the buckeye state. he had a six-point lead before the conventions. >> we don't like it. we're not going back. >> reporter: the numbers are similar in florida where the president now has a nine-point lead over romney and in pennsylvania he's maintained a double-digit advantage for a couple of months now. but it's ohio that's been the main focus of the campaign with president obama and his republic rival each making his 14th trip to the state. turn on a tv set in ohio and this is what you'll likely see during a commercial break. both campaigns sent more here than any other state. president obama and his allies have spent nearly $48 million on ads in the state since may 1. romney is not far behind. he and the super pack supporting him have pumped in nearly $43 million. >> how in the world can people say they want four more years of president obama? we can't afford four more years of president
with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the w begins next tuesday. now, today the president was again selling his policies and his record in a state he says has benefitted from the auto bailout. he talked about the thousands of jobs created but also hit china and went after his gop opponent. >> he's been talking tough on china. he says he's going to take the fight to them. he's going to go after these cheaters. and i've got to admit, that message is better than what he's actually done about this thing. it sounds better than talking about all the years he spent profiting from companies that sent our jobs to china. so when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads he's running promising to get tough on china, it feels a lot like that fox saying, you know, we need more secure chicken coops. >> reporter: as for the polls, traveling campaign spokeswoman j

was as president obama stated to make energy rates skyrocket. only makes conceiveable sense in electricity and energy is in the stratosphere much more expensive. solar only begins to make sense. so that was the original plan. that didn't come through because congress failed to pass a climate bill which would have helped. president obama is doing everything he can to make energy more difficult when it comes to coal in the united states and other forms of drilling and things like that. so what's happened is it is ideology that is driving this policy. they want renewable energy. it is based on fear of man made global warming. they say we have to get off carbon based energy. need to do it fast. this is their ideology. that is why they're doing stuff that makes no sense. federal government as venture capitalist makes no sense. melissa: venture capitalist their record is not great. they have four companies have gotten money so far. two of them are solyndra and abound solar which have gone bankrupt. other two are solo power we're talking about now getting another loan. there you go, $187 billion

the importance this state holds on election night. there are two dueling events. president obama is at kent state university, mitt romney is in toledo. steve handelsman has news that romney got from ohio today. >> reporter: terrible news for mitt romney and his republicans. no republican has ever won the white house, none, ever, without winning the state of ohio. romney was doing pretty well there, behind by less than 1 percentage point earlier this month. but in the latest ohio poll, romney trails by ten. he's wrapping up his bus tour of ohio, a blue collar state that's must-win for mitt romney. >> there's dignity and honor and meaning in good hard work. >> reporter: but despite romney's work here, many visits, ohio may be moving out of reach. even with the help today of ohio native jack nicklaus who says he's laid off workers from his gulf business. >> we can't afford for mour years like the last four years. i know i sure can't. >> reporter: romney can't afford more polls like today. after he was caught on tape d disparaging the 47% of americans who said feel like victims.

. on election day you need to reach 270 for a victory. the tossup states are in yellow. say president obama wins ohio, his numbers go up to 255. say he wins another huge state like florida and he is at 284. all of a sudden it's game over. now you see why the candidates are focused on the buckeye state. >> very different messages for mitt romney and president obama. who are they talking to and where in ohio? >> reporter: mitt romney is in the middle of this campaign bus tour through the state. it's lasting three days. he's doing three campaign rally. this is the latest poll showing president obama with a 51%, 44% lead. >> there's so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. i know what it takes to get an economy going again. >> reporter: as for the president, this was his 29th trip to ohio before taking office. he held rallies at two college campuses. obama targeted the middle class vote while speaking to supporters at bowling green university. >> we can create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years with the right policies. that's what i'm fighting for.
obama and mitt romney meanwhile battling it out in the swing state of ohio. john harwood joins us now with all the details. good evening, john. >> good evening, larry. you know, in the wake of that 47% video last week, mitt romney's got a new message and that's to tell middle class people as well as the poor that he cares about them. he did it on the stump in ohio today, he also did it in an interview with our nbc colleague ron allen just a few minutes ago. here's mitt romney. >> i served as a pastor of a congregation with people of all different backgrounds and economic circumstances that i care very deeply about the american people and people of different socioeconomic circumstances. and i think throughout this campaign, as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i've got everybody in my state insured. >> and here's some numbers, larry, that show you why that is mitt romney's message rather than tax cuts. you can't compare in the state of ohio where a new york times cbs poll shows mitt romney down by ten percentage points, president obama ahead on the econ
key states ohio and florida. according to "the washington post," president obama has a four-point lead over mitt romney in florida. four points downheren a ry tough state. 51%,/47% for obama. in ohio, the president's lead is a more comfortable eight points. 52/44. that's dramatic. we have joining us -- let's take a look at that for a minute. howard fineman, thanyou for joing us, and joe klein of "time" magazine. ank you. strikes me the mberput out night, and i'm going to get all through them, shows a party obliterated to reality. she don't seem to watch the news. don't seem to know the huge fight that went on when we realized there was no weapons of mass destruction in iraq. that was the whole rlity we lived in, the disillusionment on the right, the confuon in the middle, the anger on the left. they didn't even experience that riod of time? >> well, chris, to put a charitably, i think the republican party today is the nostalgia party. atas msense of ihavi kindf manate t w ew down in tampa at the republican convention. they think of a simpler world, a world where the verities they belie
-hand figures, the likely voters, obama is actually, according to the stated doing and little bit bitter to follow the better among white college graduates voters that he did in 2008. was and then by 13 points which is actually somewhat better. so remember when i was saying about the elan is a large margin . he is not anywhere close. that is the bottom line. you might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney, a margin of 22 points. but no word you see these outsize marches that he really needs to win the election given how obama is doing among minority voters but given how he appears to be holding the support and then some among white college graduates voters. that is where we are now in the national picture. of course as we know this election, this oddly enough not decided by the popular vote. that would be a silly and weird thing to do. instead we have this electro the system. so in of the story. that means that the election really comes down to typically the outcomes and a number of different battle ground states. this is the battle ground as we laid it out in our first, three docket
at attention to certain swing states. in this case it's president obama with ohio. ohio took home four time as much energy as any other state from the clen energy tax credit and it has the largest loan in the history of the u.s. small business administration. we are back with more bill press live at the break. and as always we are in chat at current.com/billpress. all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >>you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. >>sharp tongue, quick whit and >>you just think there is no low they won't go to. oh, no. if al gore's watching today... jack you're a little boring. boring. boring.

, back to israel and the united states, president obama barely discussed israel in the speech at the u.n. he didn't meet with netanyahu. is that -- are those things that israelis listen to and pick up on or is that really just stuff we talk about here? >> i think israelis, they look on the level of cooperation that we had with them and it's been the best in maybe in the last three presidency. the level of security that they're granted. look. if we look at iran, who's doing the cyber attacks? who's responsible for the killing of that assassination program killing most of the scientists? nobody's putting -- nobody's pointing out who they are? it's a level of cooperation and collaboration on the issues. israelis are involved and americans are involved. but i think here i think there's distrust of the two, you know, between barack obama and netanyahu. his heart is with a right wing. with the republican party. he think that they can advance better the agenda. what mitt romney and many others in the republican party said about the palestinians, that they don't exist, they don't want peace an
of the state where tampa and orlando are and the miami metro area. .. we see college graduate group that obama lost by about 11 points in 2008. facing the most polls he's physically about even. i think that makes it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition that can take the state. colorado has been fairly close so again obama mabey looks like a fairy or four-point lead on average read a lot of demographic change. you can see the minority eligible voters have gone up by three percentage points and working-class voters in 2008 have gone down by three percentage points. again it doesn't appear that romney is able to turn the demographics tie in his favor. he's not doing much better among the white working-class voters according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. f
roads on the presidential campaign lead to ohio today. president obama and mitt romney, both return for rallies in the battleground state. >> and it is great to have you back, rob. >> thanks. >> the stakes could not be higher, with the latest polls showing the president pulling ahead among ohio voters. abc's tahman bradley joining us this morning from washington with a preview. good morning, tahman. >> reporter: good morning, paula and rob. this is the first time in two months both president obama and mitt romney will be in the same state at the same time. in fact, they're both holding rallies today at the same time. giving a voters a sense of how crucial ohio is. today, a showdown in ohio. both president obama and mitt romney spend the day campaigning in the state that could decide the election. the candidates are expected to clash today over china. the obama campaign will hit romney for investments in chinese companies. >> you can't stand up to china when all you've done is sent them our jobs. >> reporter: the faceoff in the buckeye state comes as new polls show romney falling beh
when president obama was a state senator in illinois pounding away on the bump in the road comment that was taped on "60 minutes" and just aired this last sunday. does it show that the romney campaign is grasping at straws at this point trying to gain the traction that they have tried to get all along? >> it's almost like they're sinking and they're grasping for a life preserver to stay afloat. you know, today you showed the clip at the beginning of the program and romney made the point that obama is constantly trying to pick winners and losers but he's picking losers but if that's the case he would be supporting mitt romney. they're ten points behind in ohio, a state that no republican has ever won the white house without winning. that said, almost insurmountable challenge for mitt romney. it's a bigger problem for the obama campaign and that's overconfidence. the polls look so good for obama right now that the obama campaign has to hope that they get out and vote. >> hogan, similar question to you because this time on the romney surrogates basically blaming the media. when in dou

, crucial swing state, where president obama's ahead, what does it mean for governor romney? does it mean that the debates are basically make or break? >> yes, in a word, yes. because anderson, if you were just, say it was just ohio and florida, you could dedicate more campaign time, send governor romney, send paul ryan, send more tv ad money, you could send them into those two states, right? kou try to essentially carpet bomb those two states. as you noted, polling also shows him down in virginia. polling also shows him brand new today down in iowa, shows him down in nevada, shows him down in wisconsin. it's a dead heat in colorado and a dead heat in new hampshire. when you have all this ground to cover, you don't have the time and resources. six weeks is a lot of time, but you can't change so many different states. what does he need? a national shift in the dynamic, especially on the question you just mentioned to gloria, who would best handle the economy. if governor romney can't change that, especially in that big first debate, he's in trouble. >> it's interesting, gloria, there's a l
obama leading in four crucial swing states. now, the new polling was done after the release of mitt romney's secretly recorded remarks to a group of wealthy donors back in may. romney told them as you know that 47% of americans are dependent on government, see themselves as victims and will vote for president obama no matter what. he said it wasn't his job to worry about them. he says he didn't say it very elegantly but as you saw at the top, mr. romney doubled down today with cnn's jim acosta on that now debunked ad claiming that president obama is taking the work requirement out of welfare. in addition, as we said, there's new polling out tonight with a special focus on the economy. i talked about it earlier with chief national correspondent john king and chief political analyst gloria borger. so john, new polling out today from the "washington post" focuses on two of the most critical states in the election cycle, obviously ohio and florida. what do they show? >> they show bad news for governor romney heading into the big week of the first debate. ohio without a doubt a must-win
